Read on for information on UCAS Clearing for 2022.

There are a number of reasons that you may need to apply via Clearing.

Maybe you’ve decided that after the initial deadline that the Music Industry is where you would like to be.

Perhaps you didn’t quite get the results you wanted or did better than you expected and are not looking to upgrade your university choice. Perhaps you’ve simply changed your mind about where and what you would like to study!

ACM are committed to making this process as straightforward for you as possible. We understand this is a very stressful time for you, and we will do all we can to assist you.

What is Clearing and am I Eligible?

From 5 July – 18 October 2022, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

You can use Clearing if:

  • you’re applying after 30 June
  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers
  • you’ve paid the multiple choice application fee of £26.50
  • you’ve declined your FIRM place using the ‘decline my place’ button in your application

You can formally apply via UCAS Clearing from the 5th of July, at any stage after registering your initial interest with us on the phone, email or via our web application.
